Might want to get ahold of WickedWon, he has them on his
41' Saber with Staggered 1,100 hp. if I remeber correctly.

The boat is at Saber right now.

Cigar - Typhoon Performance Marine in NJ rigged a 38 Top Gun TS with #6s and big power, within the last 2 seasons. They can give you some information. Ask for Chuck B.

Default Forget it!

All the 38 cigs with #6s struggle with too much stern weight. The only one that excepted it OK was Mr Proctors boat and that was because he had staggered engines. Find a pair of #5s with boxes, you will be better off.
